Entrepreneur's idea: Mermaid for hireThe fish-shaped woman propelled herself from end to end of the swimming pool with the help of a purple-tinted monofin. She paused mid-pool to flip head over tail. By land she’s Jessica Benson, a 19-year-old with an eye toward the entertainment industry. By water, she’s Ayla the Mermaid testing a $3,000 custom-made tail of scalloped silicone during down hours at the Radisson Hotel’s pool.
